Sunflowers Of The Damned

7 Aug

1a Rhosili

People sometimes ask me if I could do them a ‘nice landscape’. My answer to that is that I don’t do a nice anything. Husb and I went down to Rhossili Bay this evening to see the field of sunflowers and I drew them with charcoal into my Khadi sketchbook. The flowers are beautiful, bright and colourful but I chanelled my inner German Expressionist and ended up with the sunflowers of the damned.

There was strange weather as well. It was really sunny when we left the city but by the time we reached the beach the cloud had dropped out of the sky and covered the headland and Worm’s Head and created a very odd effect in the sky. It was our first proper trip since lockdown began. We’ve been going walking most days and working our allotment but we haven’t been ‘out out’, although it’s less than 20 miles.
